The Walter F. George Lake, named for Walter F. George (1878–1957), a United States Senator from Georgia, is formed on the Chattahoochee River along the state line between Alabama and Georgia. It is also widely known by the name, Lake Eufaula — particularly in Alabama, where the state legislature passed a resolution on June 25, 1963, to give the lake that name.[1] The 46,000-acre lake extends north about 85 miles (140 km) from the Walter F. George Lock and Dam (31°37′10″N 85°4′15″W / 31.61944°N 85.07083°W / 31.61944; -85.07083 (Walter F. George Lock and Dam)) and has approximately 640 miles (1,030 km) of shoreline. Popular activities along the lake include camping and trophy fishing.

The lake is primarily controlled by the US Army Corp of Engineers. The states control several other protected lands along the lake, including the Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge and Lakepoint State Park in Alabama, and Florence Marina and George T. Bagby state parks in Georgia.

The flooding of the land in the area covered numerous historic and prehistoric sites associated with Native American culture. Indigenous peoples had lived along the river for thousands of years. The unincorporated area of Oketeyeconne, Georgia, which historically had a majority of Native American residents, was evacuated in the 1950s to allow creation of the lake.

Transcription

My brother and I Gordon we put in at Franklin Landing and going up river to Walter F George Lock That damn is the damn that make Lake Eufaula Lake Eufaula is a 45,000 acre lake located on the Chattahoocee River between Alabama and Georgia. The lake is nationally known for it's bass and crappie fishing. Franklin landing is off of state Hwy 10 just before you cross the river into Georgia. This is the first time that I filmed anything on water. And I messed up quite-a-bit on video footage But, that is why you have editors. I bumped the speed up here a little bit. So we can get on down to the damn. Now we are getting closer to the damn. All the fresh erosion is from a storm we had in February 2015 The river flooded it's banks. That's a lot of water to flood these banks. That's the lock but, all my footage was bad. So, we are just going to scoot on out of here and look at the damn. That's my brother Gordon. He owns RRR Tool Solutions dot com. Ok, let's get on back to Franklin's Landing.
